Mumbai: Ediffy, a student communication and engagement application deployed in education institutes, is on expansion drive. After successfully strengthening its roots in Maharashtra, the company is now expanding its reach to other states of India like Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, and Karnataka.
Ediffy is revolutionising the way technology is being used in educational institutes since 2013. The company is bridging the communication gap in educational institutes through its cloud-based solution. It has so far connected over 2.5 lakh students and 1500 teachers on its platform.
Commenting on the expansion, Parth Gandhi, CEO, Ediffy said, “We saw that there was a lot of lacuna when it came to communication within the institutes, be it announcements, projects deadlines, fests etc. At the same time other than a written note in the wards’ book, there was no tool for communication between the parents and teachers. Streamlining this communication was the need of the hour and that’s how we started the process of building our app. Our aim is not just to encourage urban institutes to use technology but also handhold and bring efficiency to rural educational institutes. Moreover, the government has recognised the virtues of a Digital India and we are seeing to it that our efforts are in line with providing these virtues to them.”
“The number of smartphone users in India is growing and consumers today are well informed. Through the Digital India initiative, the government is providing impetus for the growth of tech in India. However, connectivity remains a challenge. To address this we built Ediffy in such a way that it works offline too,” added Gandhi.
The app is available both on ios and Android platform. Additionally last mile connectivity is provided via SMS support. “As working parents it becomes impossible to multitask and manage our child’s day-to-day activities. The notifications from Ediffy keep us calm as we get updates of the location while he is travelling in the school bus,” said Anjali Shah (parent), user of Ediffy.
Ediffy has been specifically developed by taking into consideration ground realities in terms of infrastructure in institutes and comfort level of teachers and parents in using the tech. “Ediffy is a one-stop solution where all our data is available and accessible from anywhere at any time. Scope for human error reduces and helps us push real-time data to parents,” says Dr. A.S Deshpande, Principal – KLS Institute of Technology, Belgaum.
